How to Become a Learniing Destination


The Process


The New Forest Children's Universtiy is working with a variety of Learning Providers to make being part of Children's University even more fun!

What is involved in becoming a CU validated Learning Destination?


Children's University works closely with all kinds of learning providers and activity leaders to offer children the widest variety of opportunities. In order to offer a consistent quality of activities we undertake a quality assurance process to validate these opportunities to confirm they meet certain standards.

This validation does not require the completion of an excessive amount of paperwork. It simply involves learning providers completing an online form and putting time aside to talk to one of our Children's University managers about what is on offer for children and ensuring that our organisations are aligned in our commitment to children.

If you're a learning provider and want to validate your activities for children, simply click 'Next' below. You'll be asked to do a quick eligibility check and then invited to submit information about your activity.
